Now, whether you choose to live in an Air Bnb home or apartment on your travels is up to you, but one thing you need to do to make your travels are more budget-friendly is put your own apartment up on air Bnb. When you are traveling around the world, your home or apartment is empty and putting it up on Air Bnb will ensure that you get some extra money while you are traveling. The extra money from your Air Bnb home can really help you out while traveling and make your travels more comfortable.
Choose the Location of Your Travels Wisely
You should also pay attention to the places you are traveling to. Some countries are way cheaper to travel as compared to others. I mean, for the price you travel to Paris or London you can travel to two or three different countries. So, keep this in mind and choose your travel locations accordingly, there are some amazing locations that you can travel at a very low price.
One of the most popular affordable travel locations is Bali, Indonesia. Bali is an amazing tropical paradise with a lot of amazing tourist locations. You can also travel to places like Thailand, China, and Russia, Brazil, Argentina, Chile and many other locations that are very cheap as compared to some of the expensive locations like Hong Kong, Dubai, New York, and London.
Taste the Local Cuisine
One of the best things about traveling is getting to enjoy some delicious and exotic food. Whenever you visit a new location, you should always try out the street food. The street food will give you an authentic experience of the local cuisine. And having street food is also quite budget-friendly, as the street food is considerably cheaper than the food at restaurants.
So, don’t miss out on the local street food in the new countries that you visit. It is a great way to save money and have an amazing experience at the same time.
Make a Vlog
Go to YouTube and check out some travel vlogs. These vloggers have so much fun traveling and traveling is like their full-time job, because they make a lot of money from it. A popular vlog can earn you enough money to travel all over the world comfortably and easily without worrying about money. So, get a camera and some equipment and start recording your amazing travel adventures to make money while you are traveling.
Vlogging is also a good option because it is way easier to build up a travel vlog channel because of the local views in the country you are travelling. A travel Vlogging channel on YouTube will get monetized easier than other channels, and it will also make you a lot of money to travel even more and make more vlogs.
So, here are some basic tips on travelling which will help you a lot and allow you to have amazing adventures on a budget. Happy traveling!

I love this post! I just recently wrote a blog post about how to budget travel through Norway. I went on my first solo trip to Norway back in 2014 and fell in LOVE with it!!! I literally looked into jobs there in media (that s what I work in now-a major newspaper), but I didn t find anything and I got sad! LOL Seriously though, I want to go back sooo badly, but this time venture up to Lofoten Islands. I m pretty sure I could just become a fisherman (fisherwoman??) and live in those cabins for the rest of my life!!! hahah!! If I ever make my way back up there, which I m hoping to do MAYBE next year, I ll shoot you an email? ?? Love your blog and I love all your Norway posts!!!! Keep it up! ??
Hi Artemeva, thanks for the comment. Hope you had a good time in Norway and safe travels to Poland. Jonny
